One of the other drinks I had at the Fratelli Branca company's Piccola Italia educational soirée at the Villa Victoria Center was from Russell House Tavern's new bar manager, Sam Gabrielli. Earlier in the evening, Sam mentioned that he had proposed a Flip for the event and he was not expecting to have made the cut for the drink roster. However, after he did, he gained either the respect or the confusion of the other bartenders as to why someone would volunteer to make possibly hundreds of egg drinks. Regardless, Sam was up for it though and was quite proud of his creation. From the description, I decided to saved his Don't Flip Out for my end of the evening nightcap.
